PaidViewpoint General Information


Payment Process
Take online surveys in exchange for cash and gift cards. Get paid to your PayPal account when you have accumulated a $15.00 USD balance, or receive an Amazon or Walmart e-gift card instead. Rewards are processed within 72 hours of request. If you are located outside the USA, you will still be paid to your PayPal account, or issued an e-gift card in US dollars.

Getting Notified for Surveys
Receive e-mail notifications when full surveys (biz surveys) become available. These will also be displayed in your account when they become available. Upon logging in, you will see a message in the top right corner that says, "1 survey available".

Survey Lengths
Survey lengths vary, but are typically between 5-10 minutes.

Daily Surveys
You can wait to be e-mailed about regular online surveys when they become available, but you can also take "Trait Surveys" and earn between $0.03 and $0.10, on most days. These Trait Surveys not only serve to increase your earnings slowly, but also helps increase your Traitscore. Note that receiving trait surveys regularly may depend on your region.

The higher your Traitscore, the more you can earn per survey. A high Traitscore allows you to receive the maximum number of surveys per month. Achieve a Traitscore of 9000, and become part of the top 10% of members. This means you’ll earn even more per answer.

Referral Program
PaidViewpoint offers a generous referral program where you will earn 20% of what your referrals earn for taking “biz surveys”. In other words, earn 20% from your referrals when they take surveys other than “Traits Surveys”. You can have an unlimited amount of referrals and can earn up to $25 per referral. If you can refer friends from the USA, you will likely find you can earn more.

New Member Bonus
Join and immediately get a signup bonus deposited to your account. Amounts vary per country, but for USA and Canada, it is $1.00.

Note: McAfee antivirus has mistaken PaidViewpoint as a "phishing" website. You can ignore this warning.

"Slow but consistent earnings."
November 18, 2016 by Corbin from United States

This is not a huge money maker. But stick with it and it will provide with $15 payouts every couple of months or so. Very creative way of filtering out dishonest panelists and trying to reward them with a very small (pennies) bonus.

this is a good site. got paid 4 times i love it they always pay as soon as you get 15 dollars you can cash out

"Freezes or deletes earnings if you change payout email address!?!"
November 15, 2016 by Jane from United States

If you want to change your paypal email address on paid viewpoint, they will either erase all your earnings and leave your point balance at zero, or freeze all future earnings for 180 days?! I have no idea why they would do this. Probably just another way to get out of paying people. I've had problems with cashing out on their site in the past. They tried to get out of paying me by claiming I'd registered in the wrong country! Of course I hadn't, and they did pay up in the end, but their sneaky tactics allowed them to delay paying me for weeks.

Hi Jane,

We are sorry to hear that you do not like our site and think we are being sneaky. We value our members and without our members, we would have no one to answer the surveys from our customers. Most likely, you are misunderstanding our site and rules. Usually these kinds of complaints are solved without delay by writing to us directly at support@paidviewpoint.com. You may write to me directly if you prefer personalized customer service.

The Burn/Freeze rule had to be enacted because some members were trying to cheat and open hundreds of PV accounts. Our Burn/Freeze rule on phone numbers and PayPal addresses are explained on our FAQs page as notated below:

You can change your registered phone number (and PayPal address) at any time. However, each time you change your number, your account cash balance will be zeroed. Alternatively, you can freeze your earnings for 180 days at which time you’ll be asked to validate the same new number to unfreeze them. This helps prevent people from attempting to break the rules and operate more than one PaidViewpoint account. We suggest that you only change your registered phone number following a cash-out when your account balance is back to zero. If you have changed your registered phone number, you are permitted to change back to the original number at any time. No member can use a number that has ever been used by another member.

We hope you write to us and hope you stay with us.


"Very few surveys"
November 13, 2016 by Sharmaine from Philippines

What's nice about this site is that every 2-3 days, it gives you 1-2 trait/personality surveys which add another $ 0.03 each to your balance.

However, there's still very few actual surveys. In the 7 months (April to November) I have been a member for this site, I have never once received an actual non-trait and non-personality survey.

With the redemption price at $ 15, and only $ 0.03 every 2.5 days, it'll take more than 2 years to actually cash out. (Assuming my math is correct and I continue to receive 0 actual surveys.) That said, I can't tell you if they will actually pay up when you try to redeem your hard-earned money as I have not experienced it.

"I just cashed out"
November 09, 2016 by Nevalyn from United States

I have been taking surveys on paid viewpoint for a few months now. I finally just cashed out my $15.00! It takes a long time to cash out but the surveys are quick and easy.
